1728 is the natural number following 1727 and preceding 1729. 1728 is a dozen gross, one great gross (or grand gross, or, in Germanic, Mass).

In mathematics[edit]

It is the cube of 12 and, as such, is important in the duodecimal number system. It is the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot. 1728 occurs in the algebraic formula for the j-invariant of an elliptic curve. As a consequence, it is sometimes called a Zagier as a pun on the Gross–Zagier theorem. The number 1728 is one less than the Ramanujan Number 1729.
